Thales Gesture Control
Thales IFE, a major in-flight entertainment company, was looking for a fun application that would allow visitors to take a look at their 4 different divisions: Top Series, Top Connect, Top Effects and Top Services.
We designed a flight simulator application where the user’s hands are the control interface. The user takes control of the ‘A’ from the Thales logo, which becomes a plane that the user can fly and control in the virtual landscape. Each of the 4 divisions can be ‘explored’ by clicking on relevant icons and images within the landscape.
This application has also been designed to help the industry to realise that gesture recognition has a role to play in the future development and control of interior aircraft equipment, including – but not necessarily limited to – in-flight entertainment.
